A limestone sample from 'Stage' 8-Silurian strata of Akerl√łkken in the Ringerike area has yielded a number of brachiopods and a diversified conodont collection. Faunal lists are presented and the taxonomy of the 49 conodont element-types identified is discussed. A new multi-element species, Apsidognathus walmsleyi sp. nov., is named and described. The conodont fauna compares with those of the amorphognathoides Zone of Austria and the P. amorphognathoides Assemblage Zone of Britain and a high upper Llandovery (4) or early Wenlock age is indicated.
